The conference brings together the international leaders in the sphere of mobility from 14 to 16 June 2022 at IFEMA MADRID Recinto Ferial.

New proposals from different sectors to tackle investment initiatives, payment systems and the role of recovery plans in mobility.

The development of a new, more sustainable mobility has brought new stakeholders to the economy and society with new proposals and services. This is no less the case in the financial and insurance sector and we will see some of the solutions to this transformation at Global Mobility Call, from 14 to 16 June at IFEMA MADRID.

This project, a collaboration between IFEMA MADRID and Smobhub, seeks to lead the sustainable mobility ecosystem from Madrid and contribute to the economic recovery and energy resilience, so necessary in light of the current urgent circumstances in Europe. The holistic focus of the of the event allows for all interconnected sectors to take part and advance towards the shared objective of sustainable mobility with a positive social, economic and environmental impact.

The financial and insurance sector has its own part to play in different areas of systems and services, as well as the processes in which they are involved with other stakeholders from both the public and business sector.

All those with a role to play will share their ideas on issues like financing of recovery plans with a direct impact on the sustainable mobility ecosystem; the fostering of socially responsible investment initiatives; new pay-per-use systems, subscription and automatic payment as well as non-mobility linked to the digital lifestyle, and where the financial and insurance sectors have had a major influence.

As part of the programme, sessions that stand out include “The role of the financial system in the development of mobility and sustainable investment” to be chaired by José Luis de Mora, CEO of Santander Consumer Finance, on 14 June in the Main Auditorium; and “The debate of use v property of transport methods; the citizen at the centre of new sustainable mobility services”, chaired by the CEO of Ulity (Santander Consumer Mobility Services), José Ignacio Puente.

Also on 14 June as part of the forum on Economic Development and Regulation, Raúl Costilla, General Business and Clients Manager at MAPFRE Iberia will speak as part of a session titled “The insurance sector and the new challenges of a mobility ecosystem in constant evolution”. On 15 June, the Sustainable Transport Forum will host a session on “Openpayment, improving the public transport experience”, chaired by Director of Technology and Innovation at EMT Madrid, Juan Corro Beseler.

On 16 June, the Economic Development and Regulation Forum will feature a debate on “Socially sustainable investment in sustainable mobility projects” with the participation of may figures from the sector, and on the final day of Global Mobility Call, Spain’s Minister for Transport, Mobility and the Urban Agenda, Raquel Sánchez will participate in a session on “The economic impetus of the European Recovery and Resilience Plan for a safe, connected and sustainable Europe”.
